Perfect Fit

WHY THE NEED FOR A PERFECT FIT

It’s important to find a bra that is well constructed, and the right size for you. If your bra that doesn’t fit or is poorly made it can cause neck, shoulder and back tension, sagging breasts, and uncomfortable bulges around your upper arms and breasts and even where it fits across your back. An ill fitting bra can be the cause of a number of problems.

Measurements can be done with or without a bra on. The easiest way to get your underbust measurement is if you have a friend to help.

We suggest you wear an underwire contour bra.Stand with relaxed arms and shoulders.


MEASURE YOUR UNDERBUST


Stand with your arms resting by your side and ideally get someone else to measure you around your body, directly below the bust. Make sure the tape is right under your breasts, is straight all the way around and is as tight as possible. This is how the underband of the bra will fit, so the tape should be tight, but not uncomfortable. It’s best to do this measurement while you’re not wearing a bra, or you can do it wearing one, just be careful not to sit the tape over your bra or underwire. This measurement is your UNDERBUST.

Tip - As the tape measure is not elastic but the bra is, it is essential that the tape measure is held firmly around the body when taking measurements.

MEASURE YOUR OVERBUST


Measure around the fullest part of your bust (normally done over the nipple). This is best done while you’re wearing a bra. Hold the tape gently so that the tape is resting lightly on your body. Make sure that the tape measure is straight across your back, and sits parallel to the floor. This measurement is your OVERBUST.
